Our Programs

The Shawna Shea Memorial Foundation, Inc. offers programs that support young people—especially women—in filmmaking, performance arts and other artistic and cultural endeavors through financial assistance, collaborative fellowships, mentoring and educational opportunities.


We believe this is the best way we can remember Shawna and continue her imprint in this world, that of always helping the underdog, the vulnerable, the marginalized, even in her young years. We believe this is what she would do. And we look forward to growing our programs to support women, especially young women in any artistic endeavor.
